    We are grateful you've limited your shower shots to your hand lotion.

    The bugger is when it rains and it fills up and dumps the oil on the driveway anyway, just all at once instead of slowly.......8)
    Or when the South Easter blows it a bit skew in the driveway and SWAMBO pulls in anyway.....

    ... you try convince management to just have one more and use all kinds of obscure reasons why you actually need it.

    I'm attack it from various perspectives:
    - Need a Series so that the kids can help me fix it. Mom gets some time off so it's actually in HER benefit.
    - Need a Defender bakkie as a toy and do the dirty work. It keeps the other landies clean. This ones struggles a bit because the default answer is "But we have garden service to take away the dirty stuff"
    - Need a Disco 1 to take all the mileage to work and back. Saves mileage on the others. This one just gets frowned upon.

    If you own a TDV6 you have no choice, otherwise you will never drive the vehicle, or be completely bonkers after the first 10km.
